Andalucia’s Jerez is set to host the Spanish Moto GP Grand Prix in 2022 and 2023.

The Vice-President of the Andalucian Regional Government and Minister of Tourism, Regeneration, Justice and Local Administration, Juan Marín, and the CEO of Dorna Sports, Carmelo Ezpeleta, signed the agreement on Tuesday, October 19. The agreement means that the Jerez de la Frontera speedway circuit will host at least three more editions of the Spanish Grand Prix of the Moto GP World Championship during the next four seasons.

According to the Junta de Andalucia: “It is a very valuable agreement that confirms our commitment to hold major sporting events in Andalucia. There are many countries and circuits that want to host a Moto GP World Championship, but we are a guarantee of success. We have confirmed the next two editions and the 2025 edition, which is very important news given the sporting and economic impact of this event”.

The agreement also includes the promotion of Andalucia as a tourist destination through logos on exclusive curves which will be seen on television. Logos will be seen at the Grand Prix of Qatar, Spain, Germany, Assen, Finland and Great Britain.

Ezpeleta thanked the Andalucian Regional Government for keeping the Grand Prix in Jerez. He commented: “The collaboration has been very close and the help of the Andalucian Government in these years of the pandemic to maintain the competition and to be able to host these races in Jerez has been very valuable. It is a very happy day for us.”
